Handwashing Tips:
  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.

  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end twice.

  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Backpack Safety

• Wear both straps. 

• Remove and put on backpacks carefully. Keep your body stable and avoid twisting.

• Wear the backpack over the strongest mid-back muscles.  It should rest evenly in the middle of the back.

Shoulder straps should be adjusted to allow the child to put on and take off the backpack

without difficulty and permit free movement of the arms.

• Lighten the load. Keep the load at 10-15 percent or less of the student's bodyweight.  (*No one should carry more than 25 pounds) Carry only those items that are required for the day, remove articles that can be left at home. Organize the contents of the backpack by placing the heaviest items closest to the back to reduce kinetic forces that cause postural misalignment and overwork muscles.
